You may have seen the provocative posters around Bristol over recent weeks. (“Just because you’re safe indoors doesn’t mean everyone is”). This campaign starkly highlights the plight of a group of people who can’t follow ‘stay at home’ messages, because they haven’t got one. Lucy Gatward meets the people behind the Caring in Bristol campaign, Project Manager Eve Russell and Campaigns and Communications Manager Antonia Cross.

Bristol Going for Gold’s Content Coordinator Ramona Andrews meets some of the partners of the ‘What is your soul food?’ project that will celebrate and reanimate community spaces in St Pauls with artwork inspired by local residents’ cookery. The partners are working hard to get the message to diverse communities in the area during the pandemic. Food has, after all, always brought people together, even in these times where we cannot be physically close.

Migrateful is a charity that runs cookery classes led by migrant chefs struggling to integrate and access employment in the UK. The cookery classes provide ideal conditions not just for learning English and building confidence, but also for promoting contact and cultural exchange with the wider community, very much aligned with the values of Bristol Going for Gold actions in the ‘Community Action’ strand. In our latest blog post, founder Jess Thompson gives us the low-down on the project.

Food for Thought is a new type of cooking workshop from The Circle Project Bristol. Founder Miriam Delogu, shares how they are using the power of food to build connected, resilient and sustainable neighbourhoods.
